1. ### Calculus derivatives word problem

isn't the formula still the same that speed=distance traveled by car / the time it took to travel that distance if I have the angle I can just use the height and tan(theta) to figure out the distance traveled by car. s/d=tan(θ)
2. ### Calculus derivatives word problem

in that case, we can find S by s/w=D/d we have three things given and we have to find S
3. ### Calculus derivatives word problem

Is that the way I am going to find D?
4. ### Calculus derivatives word problem

Sides are proportional
5. ### Calculus derivatives word problem

if the above two triangles are similar, that's mean s should be equal to w?
6. ### Calculus derivatives word problem

i am confused that how D,d,w can help us calculate s
7. ### Calculus derivatives word problem

yeah, I can use the trigonometry but for that other side, I need an angle. I am confused about that angle. part. For the time I will start with 0s and till the time I can see it.
8. ### Calculus derivatives word problem

will it look like this?
9. ### Calculus derivatives word problem

will there be 2 lines with different angles? does that mean i will have two diagrams?
10. ### Calculus derivatives word problem
